SPEED

Our average time from initial submission to borrower approval is under 10 days.

Simplicity icon

SIMPLICITY

One-time borrower underwrite with a simple, non-invasive renewal process to extend credit line duration. This means once you’re approved, we only need to underwrite the property before funding, not the borrower.

Best in Class

  • Delivers exceptional customer service at every single step along the way
  • Retains all customer touch points in house, from initial application to final payoff

The Usual

  • Gives customer experience lip service, but fails to deliver when it matters
  • Outsources the most important aspects of the loan (construction management and servicing), forcing you to deal with multiple vendors out of the lender’s control
  • Has limited loan programs and product options
  • Requires constant re-underwriting and the same documents over and over
  • Takes forever to sign off on a project
  • Painfully slow to release draws
  • Requires you to pay interest on unused funds
